If you have Comcast internet and are trying to send mail using your Comcast account the correct server settings are
Did you at one time have AT&T internet service with Windows Live Mail configured to work with AT&T servers? The error number you receive is telling you that you cannot connect to the AT&T server. If you have no account with AT&T obviously you will not connect to the server.
You can also check your WLM settings for Comcast against what is listed here
Comcast employees must be authorized to post in the forum in an official capacity. Employees posting here have their names in red and are designated as employees. Names not in red are customers.

Not sure of the Xfinity version, but I'm on Windows Live mail, Vista system. Trying to stay with Windows Live with the new comcast email address since the old Bellsouth/At&t not working. Although one or two stray emails were able to penetrate through.
